18.104.22.168. (ex Crisis / UK)
Tony Wakeford does not need to be introduced to most listeners - his contribution to the establishment of the wholly new neofolk genre stemming from industrial music cannot be overestimated. In the 80's of the 20th century, he was one of the founding members of two UK-based influential bands - the punk act Crisis and the neofolk Death in June. His latest undertaking is a project named 22.214.171.124. - a band in which Wakeford goes back to the roots of his music activity to rearrange and reintroduce to the audience the pieces by Crisis and Death In June which he wrote or co-authored. Alongside Wakeford, the band’s members are the guitarist Clive Giblin of Alternative TV and the drummer Terry Davey, known from groups including Intensified. According to the musicians, the project is intended to be a live act, but it is already preparing to release a live album and the single Back In The USSR/ Nothing Changes on the Norton North label.
